I am still working on my very first own PCB. I got it populated and it almost works. That is everything but 3 pins. The pins seem to be completely dead. That is the issue is not that the traces or connections are bead. Even if I measure them directly at the CPU they do not react on anything I code.
I always thought AVRs have very good ESD proection. None of the DIP parts ever had something like this even with careless handling. But my first SMD part (Atmega 644P) has 3 broken pins? The pins are not adjacent. Has anyone an idea how something like this might happen?
